10 BALL AT THE NET
10.1 BALL CROSSING THE NET
10.1.1 The ball sent to the opponent’s court must go over the net within the crossing space. The crossing space is the part of the vertical plane of the net limited as follows:
10.1.1.1 below, by the top of the net;
10.1.1.2 at the sides, by the antennae, and their imaginary extension;
10.1.1.3 above, by the ceiling.
10.1.2 The ball that has crossed the net plane to the opponent’s free zone totally or partly through the external space, may be played back within the team hits, provided that:
10.1.2.1 the opponent’s court is not touched by the player;
10.1.2.2 the ball, when played back, crosses the net plane again totally or partly through the external space on the same side of the court. The opponent team may not prevent such action.
10.1.3 The ball that is heading towards the opponent’s court through the lower space is in play until the moment it has completely crossed the vertical plane of the net.
10.2 BALL TOUCHING THE NET
